In These Pandemic Times

IMG_9672.jpeg

In these pandemic times, my thoughts, prayers, and heart are with all who are sick, in fear, confused — here and around the world.

In Italy, a well-respected physician, the head of a medical association, has succumbed. Overwhelmed doctors triage patients in hospitals as in wartime, prioritizing treatment to those who have the best chance of survival. The country’s mortality rate from the virus increased in 24 hours by at least 31% to 827; its population of 60 million in lockdown.

The CDC’s Anthony Fauci reports that the COVID-19 death rate is ten times that of the flu. Scary, dystopian times, indeed. Some people are sick of hearing about it, but turning away or panicking won’t solve it. Facing it and heeding the warnings will. The gravity of it, after all, is nothing to sneeze at.

Of course, I’m washing my hands, socially distancing, staying at home, writing, hanging out on social media in communication with you all, and pleased that I can offer headache and somatic coaching sessions by video cam. Yesterday, I delighted in ye olde joy of my youth: talking on the telephone. Someone I knew only online called me, in an “accidental” butt dial, and we spent a couple of hours deep in discussion. It was great!

In closing: Be well. Stay centered. Breathe.

With blessings, peace, and love to you,

I was a guest on the wonderful, expansive Heart Over Ego Radio with The Alchemy Sisters and had a great time. We go deep! They ask about and we discuss: energy and touch healing, headaches and migraines, my spiritual path and awakening to God/Universal consciousness, Somatics, The Farm and our 60s hippie trajectory, charismatic leaders, American Commune the movie, spiritual vs. political community, and more. This is my most personally revealing interview to-date. I hope you listen, enjoy, and if so, please share.

On 2.24.2020 we hosted a discussion with Jan Mundo. As a 1960s bohemian teenager attending services in synagogue, Jan had an “’aha’ divine transmission moment” where she realized she was connected directly to God/Universal Consciousness instead of needing intermediary clergy. Later influenced by psychedelic experiences, eastern philosophies, and esoteric spiritual teachers and disciplines, she delved into the exploration of the interconnectedness of all living beings.

She developed the Mundo Method hands-on headache relief therapy in 1970. In 1992, she codified the Mundo Method into self-care instructions, created a mind-body self-care headache management program, and began teaching her program to private clients and holding classes at medical centers, universities, corporations, and conferences — including Kaiser Permanente, Stanford University, UCSF Osher Center for Integrative Medicine, New York Headache Center, Apple, LinkedIn, U.S. Association for Body Psychotherapy, and the worldwide online Embodiment Conference.

Mundo’s mission is to awaken headache and migraine sufferers to their own capacity for self-healing. Her self-illustrated book, The Headache Healer’s Handbook published by New World Library in 2018, teaches readers how to do it. Her writing and interviews about her work are published in books, magazines, online, in podcasts, and on the radio. https://theheadachecoach.com
